PDF vs Word

 

PDF and DOCX are two popular formats in the computer age. It becomes easier to edit and send documents with these two formats. Though sometimes they can be confusing, they are actually different in many aspects.

 

PDF, short for Portable Document Format, was developed in 1992 by Adobe as a file format. The format is designed to preserve the visual representation of text, images, and drawings, regardless of the environment the document is in.

 

DOCX is a filename extension for Word documents. Word was designed and developed by Microsoft, so it is called Microsoft Word. It is widely accepted as a word processor. And Word format is pretty much the de facto standard when it comes to word processing now.

 

As mentioned above, PDF is a file format for sending and capturing electronic documents entirely in the intended format. Word documents are effortlessly editable and searchable. PDF is password protected, while it is difficult to use passwords to protect Word documents. These are the main differences between PDF and Word.

 

We have learned the respective characteristics of the two formats, now let's see how to convert PDF to Word in simple steps.

 

 

How to Convert?

 

Objective-C

// Get the path of the PDF file.
NSString *pdfPath = @"...";
// Get the path to the Word file.
NSString *outputPath = @"...";

CPDFConverterWord *converter = [[[CPDFConverterWord alloc] initWithURL:[NSURL fileURLWithPath:pdfPath] password:nil] autorelease];
[converter convertToFilePath:outputPath pageIndexs:nil options:nil];

 

Kotlin

val cPDFConvert = CPDFConverterWord(context, uri, "")

val params = CPDFConvertWordOptions().apply {
     imgPixel = ImgPixel.IMG_300
     ...
}

val result: ConvertError = cPDFConvert.convert(outputDir, outputfilename, params, pageArrays, 
onHandle = onHandleCal, 
onProgress = onProgressCal, 
onPost = onPostCal)

 

C#

string resPath = "***";
string inputFilePath = "***";
string outputFolderPath = "***";
string outputFileName = "***";
OnProgress getPageIndex = null;

CPDFConverter.Init(resPath);
CPDFConverterWord converter = new CPDFConverterWord(inputFilePath);

int pageCount = converter.GetPagesCount();
int[] pageArray = new int[pageCount];
for (int i = 0; i < pageArray.Length; i++)
{
    pageArray[i] = i + 1;
}

getPageIndex += GetPageIndex;
CPDFConvertWordOptions options = new CPDFConvertWordOptions();
converter.Convert(outputFolderPath, outputFileName, options, pageArray, getPageIndex);
